Compound Finance

As an extra note to make some passive income, is Compound Finance. Compound Finance is a protocol built on the Ethereum blockchain that allows a user to lend their Ethereum assets to a pool of assets.

Once you have lent your asset to the Compound Finance protocol, you accrue interest every time an Ethereum block is mined. You are also free to withdraw your assets whenever you choose, giving you the freedom to lend and withdraw earnings as you wish.
